Excerpt: This card is giving me an error message saying to replace it. I also can not format this card. it seems to work for taking photos. Can't really tell much at this point because the Lightroon software I purchased at the same time I ordered the D810 did not have a serial number with the package so I can not load the program.
Excerpt: i generally love sandisk for my cf cards. This one however was defective and would not read or format to my cameras. B&H has the best customer service and issued me a refund and promptly sent me the return label and packing list. I love the service i get from B&H!
Excerpt: I have relied on SanDisk for all my photo needs but this card lost the most important data from a faulty card. It was brand new and so I took photos of my grandsons birth and all of them are lost!! I agree with the other reviewer that the recovery should be offered by Sandisk. So disappointed. My off brands have done much better and are more reliable.
Excerpt: I am a professional photographer and I've been using SanDisk cards for over 8 years now and they have all been great...EXCEPT these new gold label cards. I was shooting a wedding and part way through the card it gave me an error and would no longer work. I then tried to transfer the files onto my computer and it would not even recognize the card. I ran recovery software and was able to get almost all the images off, but others have not been so fortunate.
Excerpt: I bought one of these cards in February. In the middle of the first shoot using it, it gave a read/write error. I was luckily able to recover the shots, and contacted B&H to get a replacement. Was using the replacement cart the other day. All was well, until I went to get the photos off the card. Again, it's lost all the shots. I'm in the process of recovering them now and will be returning this card for a refund and purchasing another brand.
Excerpt: Like everyone else experiencing corrupt files every now and then. Not sure why it happens once in a while, but it does happen!!! Lucky I shoot with a 5d3 with dual card slots. Im going back to the older series cards and not these gold series.
Excerpt: I have used SanDisk CF cards for 8 years without a problem until I changed to this card for my Nikon D700 last fall. The new card failed the first time I used it. B & H replaced it, and 6 months later my other card failed. Both times I could recover the images with the RescuePro software, but for a professional photographer who is paid to deliver, this unreliability causes me to recommend a recall on this card.
Excerpt: I purchased this card in early February. It worked 4 or 5 times, and then with our daughter's cotillion pictures on it, it failed. Neither my PC nor my Macbook Air could read the card. Then, when I put it back in the camera, the camera also could not read the card either. Sandisk authorized ground shipping return, and has refused to address my need to purchase some recovery software to recover the pictures. Their freeware would read only about every third picture.
